>> from portland, oregon, this is "democracy now!" >> in egypt, the united states followed standard operating procedure. standard procedure when one of your favorite dictators gets into trouble. first, the support him as long as possible. but if it becomes really impossible, say the army turns against him, then you send him out to pasture and get the intellectual quest to issue declarations about your love of democracy, then try to restore the bill system as much as possible. >> "who owns the world?" with the presidential election less than two away, we turn to a major new address by noam chomsky on pressing topics not addressed in the president to campaign -- climate change, latin america's break with the united states, the arab spring, and the danger nuclear-weapons already pose in the middle east. >> israel refuses to allow inspections at all, refuses to join the non-proliferation treaty, has hundreds of nuclear weapons, advanced delivery system, and a long record of violence and repression. >> all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war an
's iraq, the first shia arab led state in history is iraq, but we never mention that. the united states cannot come to terms with the fact today that for the first time america and one of america's key regional pillars, egypt, is in place strategically. you doesn't mean they have to become pro-iranian. they are just in play. they're no longer reflective pro-american the iranian military the first time in 30 years can go through the suez. iran doesn't need syria anymore. american elites have a very hard time coming to terms with these facts. and an even harder time coming to terms with the reality that the arab awakening is accelerating erosion of american standing and position in the middle east, not iran's. but rather than face this reality, americans embrace, particularly elites here in washington, embrace the logic defined proposition that the same drivers of political change and powering islamists in arab countries will somehow transform the islamic republic into a secular liberal state. it is a logic defying proposition. still, reality is what it is. on the eve of 9/11, just over 1
and i agreed that a strong response was needed by the united states, something more than a diplomatic letter of protest. after some discussion we agreed to send two carrier battle groups to taiwan. within an hour the president had approved our recommendation and before the day was over, though carrier battle groups were underway steaming to taiwan. at a press conference the next day, i was asked would i not fear this would lead to military clash with china. i said, i was not concerned of that. and when asked why, i said, i think, well, because we have the best damn navy in the world. this was not an extravagant or hyper bolic statement t. was simply a statement of fact. it was a fact that not only i knew. it was a fact which other nations understood. even one carrier battle group had more military fire power than any other nation's entire navy, and we had two of them on the way to taiwan. so, i was confident that no one was going to challenge the fleet that we were sending there. this -- and in fact, they did not challenge it even before our two carrier battle ships arrived in taiwan
in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through president obama's leadership, secretary lahood leadership, the vision of the leaders on the stage we are here to commit $942 million to fulfill that promise. [applause] >> with the signing of this grant agreement we are taking $942 million paid by california taxpayers and to create jobs now when we need them. we're also using those dollars to improve the quality of life, and as jackie spear pointed out plan for the future and economic prosperity of this whole area. when this subway extension opens as senator feinstein pointed out there will be 44,000 people using this light rail line. what she didn't point out that will make it the second or third busiest light rail in the united states. this is an environment that needs to be made and once it's built are gone the day

arabian students in the united states. and i take pride in partnering with the cultural ministry for their tireless effort and the support of the students and their families. i would also give a special shout out to the mission here for their efforts in opening medical training and education here in the states, which have often been closed. by the way, education does not count in our trade numbers. but it is important. while i am reluctant to do math in public, if you multiply 60,000 by 100,000 a year stipend per year -- that represents an annual investment of about $6 billion into our education system. it is good for us, as well as the saudis. on our end, education and the education office works tirelessly to prepare students for their experience here. and to also educate potential students on the opportunity. as i've often said to the ambassador, i know of no area where two embassies were closer together. but the shared interest in education goes well beyond the students. saudi arabia is building new universities for men and women all over the kingdom. they have gone from eight
, particularly in the united states where we think there are some messages that are not sufficiently understood. and that's what, i hope, you will be hearing throughout the day today. and the messages at this event are focused on four issues; u.s. competitiveness, the future of jobs, economic growth -- which is tied, of course, to the first two -- and then the revival of our cities with detroit as case study number one. we are very proud to be in detroit because we see it as a great city that has incredible potential that we would just love to help participate in that dialogue to help move that process forward a little faster. but what we really want to do is change the dialogue about how the world thinks about technology. because we really don't think it is understood or appreciated how rapidly the entire landscape is shifting because of tech. i mean, today apple's literally announcing the next iphone. that's cool, but that's just the most obvious example of things that continue to move at astonishing speed, and there's developments literally everywhere you look. and we don't think leaders gen

. we'll speak with the former attorney general of the united states michael mukasey about whether the president needs to say something about this attack. it's one of the most heartbreaking images in sandy's aftermath. 100 homes lost in and i inferno in queens. we'll talk to someone who saw his family home go up in flames just ahead. megyn: fox news alert. we are waiting to hear from president obama getting his first look at disaster zone that is the jersey shore in the wake of hurricane sandy. a brand-new hour of "america live." welcome, i'm megyn kelly. the president joining new jersey governor chris christie on a helicopter tour of the devastation. this will be the president's first look. focusing the attention on the area where the storm made landfall it's one thing to see the destruction on television and another to see it in person. governor christie * giving an emotional press conference saying how it was tough for him to take in the sights and sounds of the state where he grew up. the mayor of new york city, mike bloomberg told president obama to please not come to new york
of the united states. he called me at midnight last night. he accelerated the major disaster declaration for new jersey without the usual red tape. i can't thank the president enough for that. signed that this morning. so i have to say this. the cooperation has been great with fema here on the ground. and the cooperation from the president of the united states has been outstanding. he deserves great credit. >> mitt romney, on the other hand, cannot run from his declaration about fema during the campaign. >> every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it to the states, that's in the right direction. if you can send it to the private sector that's even better. we should take all of what we're doing and say what are the things we're doing that we don't have to do and that's what we have to stop doing. we're borrowing more this year than we're taking in. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it's simply immoral. >> all that we're doing with the federal government is what he said. today romney held a storm reli
still the united states? good question. paul says i think reality should be pointed out to people of the south, they get most of those big storms they right now are getting more from the federal government than they pay in. if mitt romney were elected, how could they pay for their disasters when they can't pay their own way now. darlene asks just watching some of the rescues from the storm, i didn't see one stockbroker on hedge fund manager risking their lives. yeah, good point. we'll talk about some of the gay and lesbian issues in the campaign with terry next, and joined by fawn johnson from the national journal.

to get when we get these pictures back in of the president of the united states and chris christie who just a month or so ago delivered the keynote address at the republican national convention on belaugh of republican mitt romney. a clear sign that less than a week before the election you have a rom in the republican governor and democratic president chucking politics aside to help the region and help the eastern seaboard deal with this. but make no mistake about it. tomorrow the president is going back out on the campaign trail. he will be in colorado, nevada. on to wisconsin and ohio the next couple days. so both sides taking a bit of a time out right now. but vice president biden in florida today. mitt romney back in florida, the battleground state today. both sides have been gingerly getting back into this. today the president and governor christie putting politics aside. we are in the midst of a very, very tight election. megyn: enjoy it while you can. air force one goes pretty much where it pleases. but the rest of the country's air traffic is a mess. 15,000 flights canceled sin
50 of them in the united states. the state with the highest death toll, new york state. 26 people in new york state have died. new york city struggling to try to get back to normal. as you see here, subway stations in lower manhattan, they are still totally flooded. they need to be drained. this is a dangerous situation developing. further upbound there is limited, limited subway service that should resume a little bit more as the hours continue. an ireporter sent us this amazing picture. brooklyn had power last night, lower manhattan did not. nationwide about 6 million people in 15 states and the district of columbia still do not have electricity. also, a quarter of cell phone towers in the storm's path aren't working right now. we have cnn crews up and down the disaster area to bring you all the latest on how people are -- with what's going on. there are major problems involving power that are forcing hundreds of patients right now out of another hospital. this time it's bellevue hospital where some 700 patients -- 700 patients need to get out. they need to get out quickly. this

into the institutional arena in terms of forces stationed here in the united states as it would relate to defense support to civil authorities. i think that's primarily -- this is not a primary mission for us. it's something that we do pay attention to, of course, as we deploy overseas. not necessarily forces we have here in the states. we do understand immediate response, rolling out the gate to help our neighbors in an immediate nature, but i think not so much in terms of mobilization and deploying inside our country. so, this is an area where opportunities like san francisco fleet week will allow us for, and i believe at some point really incorporate this in some internal doctrine that will benefit us in the event that this is a requirement inside the u.s. >> thank you. this morning secretary schultz asked one of the panels that was involved in communications and command and control about in this age of information, real-time information, how you're hit with a sea of information and how do you deal with that. something as senior leaders all of you have dealt with. and i believe admiral zukunft used th

's actually carrying. we usually measure this as a volume per unit time. the united states commonly says cubic feet per second. most of the world uses cubic meters per second moving down the channel. discharge increases from the head of the stream to the stream mouth as the drainage basin increases. there's simply a larger area to contribute discharge, to contribute flow to the streams. the primary way that a river functions geologically is to transport not just water, but sediment, down slope and toward the oceans. the faster a river flows, the more efficient this process becomes, so geologists are acutely interested in flow velocity. when the flow velocity of a stream is relatively high, the energy of the moving water is converted into processes that lift chunks of bedrock or sedimentary particles from the bottom and carry them downstream. this is known as erosion. there are three different erosional processes that operate in rivers. the first is hydraulic action. the turbulence of a rapidly flowing stream applies vertical forces that lift sedimentary grains off of the bottom. the flowing cu
are those pockets of opportunity, particularly in the united states? the one thing about our system is that city x does something within two or five years and you see it spread through the system. and that regard we are highly entrepreneurial at the city scale with innovating and replicating innovation. i want to keep coming back to what are those pockets. >> we are in a great city. we are in a great metropolis. in many respects it is the tale of two cities. complicated fiscal situations. depopulation over a long time. decentralization. if you take it up to midtown, all the is a sense of momentum. as you think about this question of the smart city, the integration of systems and data, what are the possibilities as detroit wrestles with some very hard fiscal and economic challenges? what are the barriers? that can potentially be removed. >> first of all, thank you so much for asking. i have lived in detroit my entire life, 40 plus years. i've worked for the city of detroit over 20 years. there is definitely a focus on the condition of the cities in america as well. what your overwhel

to witness it today personally. it's my honor to introduce to all of you the president of the united states. >> good job, chris. i have to say that governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. and i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back, even stronger than before. >> let me get to this, governor rendell. you're a pro. and i think you can tell people right now, in a couple of minutes, how different it is being a professional politician from being your average, passionate political person, who roots for one side against the other. but doesn't understand what it's like to work day to day with somebody from the other political party, and finding common ground. you've done it, when you worked with w. when he was president. explain how that works. you put aside the partisanship and you work together. >> well, you have to. and particularly in an emergency management. because the whole syste
of the united states does a good job, i will praise him. and if he does a bad job, i will criticize him. but he has done a good job in the last few days for new jersey, and so he deserves and has earned my praise and will get it regardless of what the calendar says. >> today republican governor chris christie, keynote speaker at this year's republican convention and an early endorser of mitt romney, has a new best friend. barack obama. >> spoke to the president three times yesterday. he called me for the last time at midnight last night asking what he could do. i said if you could expedite, new jersey is a major disaster area, that that would help us to get federal money and resources in here as quickly as possible to clean up the damage here. the president was great last night. said he would get it done. at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple final questions and he signed the declaration this morning. i have to give the president great credit. he's been very attentive and anything i've asked for he's gotten to me, so i thank the president publicly for that. he's done, as far as
the president of the united states as he tours with chris christie today? >> i think they want to hear specific things about how they're going to get help and how soon it's going to come. when people think about the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i
, the president of the united states asked mayor bloomburg, i would like to take a look at all of the damage and mayor bloomburg had a press conference and said we are flattered by the fact that the president of the united states would like to come and visit us, but not right now and we are really busy and the first responders need to pay to exeem put things back in order. it would be great if the president goes to new jersey and the president will tour the devastation with the chief executive new jersey chris christy. >> gretchen: when the president comes the city is shut down . the city can't have security detail and anything like that at all. but he will go to new jersey which is your home eric. >> i am trying to figure out why. i get it he wants to see the damage. please come can go and sign the check to help fema to sign over the money . chris christie was on saying that we have gotten acess to the funs we are going to need. i am not sure what touring the sight. >> steve: it is smart politics for the president. there is chris christie helping the people on the jersey shore. it is essent

(laughter) as you know, the only president in united states history who ever had his wallet stolen by a baby. (laughter) you don't hear as much about old president craphispants. (laughter) but given obama's foreign policy record, this debate is going to be a bloodbath. >> i congratulate him on taking out osama bin laden. drones are being used in drone strikes and i support that entirely. and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i felt the same as the president did. i supported his action there. absolutely the right thing to do to have crippling sanctions.
